No, Toc will never play those songs again. They can’t do otherwise, can’t help to start over every time without being sure not to grind some new manias escaped from his last tours.
Not having gave up belonging to the big family of the music industry, the three musicians continually reinvent their hypnotic free-pop, raising their intoxicating and solar rhythms with a hint of throbbing kraut jazz-core, producing hits without a future, heady and highly addictive …
As their name seems to indicate, Toc members are quite obsessive and even compulsive. Their frenetic, ritualized but non-contagious behaviors bring the listener in a hectic space-time before bringing him back to the mainland in a more or less troubled state.
This is the sixth album from this trio, after incursions in the northern acoustic (Qeqertarsuatsiaat – 2015) and in the wet bayou (Air Bump – 2016), rich from their many concerts, experiments and meetings, Toc returns to their electrical and urban channel with fervor.
Unclassifiable and communicative, Toc persists to disturb the spirits since 2008. “Will Never Play These Songs Again” is set to be released through French label Circum-Disc on February 1st 2018.
